IER 387 - Deterministic Models
(3 cr.) This course is the first of a two-course sequence that emphasizes modeling and analysis of real-world systems. This course focuses on modeling techniques without consideration of uncertainty or probabilistic effects. The course introduces the deterministic modeling process and many of the classical deterministic models used by systems engineers, operations researchers, and management professionals to identify and analyze alternatives as part of the Systems Decision Process (SDP). Emphasis is placed on creative application of the modeling process to include formulation, solution methods, analysis of results, and interpretation. Topics include deterministic life-cycle cost modeling, linear programming, sensitivity analysis, networks, transportation models, dynamic programming and integer programming. Students spend several lessons in a computer lab environment. Prerequisite: CSC 110; Every Year, Fall
